It should be named Hotter than Hell, TX. Make sure the house has COLD AC and you make plenty of money to pay extra from February to mid-December for said AC. It's hot there.

There is lots of new growth there and you should not have a problem finding a place to live.

One time I was working there--we went out at 8:30 in the evening and the bank's temp sign was reading 104. It wasn't a glitch.

In my humble opinion, the only reason to get No Country For Old Men would be to see the landscape of Eagle Pass!

imdb has the filming location(s) as Marfa, TX, Big Bend, TX, and some others.

No Country for Old Men (2007) - Filming locations

Piedras Negras is across the border from Eagle Pass, but it doesn't show any filming in Eagle Pass. No difference in the landscape, though.

IMDB does not list all the locations for their films. In one of the scenes , you see downtown Eagle pass (it's even written on top of one of the buildings).

Update: I stand corrected. read this blog for an interesting take on the film locations: Exquisitely Bored in Nacogdoches: Eagle Pass, Texas

Oh, they should update their "database" then. It's all West Texas and it all looks pretty much the same anyway. Cactus and coyotes.

I couldn't sit through that movie anyway.

If you are going to recommend any movie to show the landscape of the Eagle Pass area (and other parts of South and West Texas, along with Mexico), recommend the best one. That would be Lone Star. Here is the IMDB listing for it: Lone Star (1996)

It does more justice for Texas scenery than No Country For Old men or There Will Be Blood. It also holds more relevancy to Eagle Pass than either of those two shot primarily in Marfa. It also has a great story and underlying messages that may or may not prevail the first time you watch it. I can't think of a better film for capturing the essence of a smaller border town life.

i understand Eagle Pass is a hott, dry, dusty and probably not a very popular place to live. i understand and accept that because it would only be for two years at the most. my original question, which only one person addressed, is the availibility of houses for rent. i dont want to move somewhere where i cant find a place comfortable for me and my furry family members. is there anyone from the area that knows how hard this may be to find there?

Wasn't part of it shot in Terrel county, where Tommy Lee Jones' Character was the Sheriff?
